    Good news - but not GREAT news. We really need a completely free flash/Silverlight competitor. Moonlight will still be using binary blobs for the decoding of media, and thus most Linux distributions probably won't be able to legally ship with Silverlight support anyway.

    EDIT: woops, just took a look at Miguel's blog - he seems to be saying that people can still use Moonlight in a 100% free setup, but there's still some doubt over redistribution. Still, I guess it's not TOO bad having to manually install it - after all, we do the same for Flash and suchlike.
